Hello there Makers! I am so excited to finally share what’s been keeping me busy over here behind the scenes at Mine for the Making! We sold our home a few months ago, bought an RV, consolidated our debt, simplified our living, and bought our own piece of earth. That’s right… We are officially land owners and we couldn’t be more thrilled. And now that we have our glorious acre and a quarter, we are ready to share some of our BIG plans with you, our awesome readers. We are about to take this blog to a whole new level. If you’ve followed along for awhile, you know I share home decor, DIY projects, crafts, recipes, travel, and mom adventures. Now we are about to take you on a new kind of journey as MFTM Builds a House!
We are going from city living to ranch life. From houses right next door to one another to homes and barns on an acre or more. City living to county living. Horses and farm animals all around. We are very, very excited for this adventure (which also happens to be my one little word for 2016) and we can’t wait to share it all with you.
You are seeing it firsthand, in the very beginning stages. Now, we are measuring out the property, laying out where everything will go, designing the house with an architect, and getting information about permits. Our plan is to build our new home ourselves, showing you the process along the way. The cool part is that we aren’t building an ordinary house. We are going to show you alternative and eco-friendly housing at it’s finest. Tips, tricks, how-tos, failures and accomplishments… all of it all along the way.
I will be sharing a ton as we go on social media (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter) as well as videos (Periscope and YouTube)… you can literally come on this adventure with us! Stay tuned for all of our plans and watch our dreams become reality as MFTM Builds a House!
